Search function questions

(daniel b mckinney) #1

I’m using the search function on a PC and was wondering if there was a way to search for photos that have meet either/or conditions. For example, let’s say I’m looking for all images shot at either 1/100 or 1/50. Is this possible?

If I use both criteria “1/100 s” and “1/50 s” it returns nothing as I assume this searches for photos that meet BOTH criteria (which, of course, is impossible).

Also, searches can’t look into subfolders, can they?

Hello @DanMcKinney,

Yep, the combination search is not possible.

  • If you search by a global folder name, the images from subfolders are not displayed, it’s true.

You could try this: Search for 1/100 and put the results in new project “A”, then search for 1/50 and add the new results to project “A”.

Thanks for the idea, but I’ll look for other search tools to get this done, I think.

But it would be cool if the search functions within DXO could be expanded to include Boolean searches - and searching sub-directories, too!

Good morning, Daniel,

Both requests are in our backlog but they will be done in the order of priority and I can confirm that they are not in the top of the list for now.

Svetlana G.
